Trump continues fighting with Republican senators

By contrast, the president has singled out few Democrats, saving his criticism for their leadership.

"These carefully calibrated sanctions send a strong signal to the Maduro regime while still allowing for much needed humanitarian assistance", said Senator Corker.

Corker said last week that Trump hadn't "been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to" in dealing with crises like the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. It would have been better if President Trump had said that immediately after Charlottesville and stuck to it.

When White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked Thursday about Corker's statement, she said, "I think that's a ridiculous and outrageous claim and doesn't dignify a response from this podium".

"There is no senator - no Republican senator - who President Trump talks to more than Bob Corker".

But it is not just for Amazon Prime members. "That's a competitive advantage". The Amazon/Whole Foods merger promises, among other things, cheaper avocados.

Trump's tweet adds another layer to an increasingly chaotic relationship with Republican lawmakers at a time when they will need to cooperate on multiple crucial policy initiatives.

Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is personally closer to Trump than most GOP senators.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ken.) isn't the only senator President Donald Trump has been lashing out at. Corker called the ad tacky and said it should stop running, but it took the RNC almost a week to pull it off the air. At a Tuesday night rally in Phoenix, Trump went after - though not by name - Arizona's US senators, John McCain and Jeff Flake, both Republicans. Meanwhile, some on the populist, tea-party wing of the party, including former state Rep. Joe Carr, are considering a primary challenge to Corker.

The Tennessee senator also lauded the president's first worldwide trip overseas, saying that he could not be more pleased. He raised questions about the president's stability and competence, demanding "radical changes" in the White House. "But I see my job as saying what I think and his job is saying what he thinks". "I know that for a fact", Alexander said, according to a statement from his press aide.

Green announced in early August that he did not intend to run against Corker in 2018 based on how "everything sits right now".
